? neighbors? >> they're my heroes! (laughs) captioning sponsored by cbs this is the "cbs evening news" with scott pelley. >> pelley: good evening. as of today we are down to the final four weeks of the presidential campaign. the focus is narrowing, not just to the nine battleground states but to one in particular-- ohio, which could tip the balance on election night. first the big picture. nationally, the latest gallup poll shows mitt romney leading president obama 49% to 47%. that spread is within the margin of error, so it's essentially a tie. in ohio, new polling today shows this: pollster a.r.g. has romney up by one point, 48% to 47%. but a cnn poll has the president up by four, 51% to 47%. either way, it's an improvement for romney who was falling well behind in ohio until last week's debate. both candidates were in ohio today where this is the last day to register to vote. our campaign 2012 correspondents are there, too, and we'll go to nancy cordes with the obama campaign. >> reporter: scott, ohio is the grand prize for the obama campaign. they have 120 field offices here, the
. president obama says he's proud of vice president biden's debate performance. a cbs news poll taken right after the debate of undecided voters thought 50% thought biden won. mitt romney and president obama will square off again next tuesday in a town hall style debate in new york. bob schieffer, the hose of cbs news' face the nation, will moderate the october 22nd debate in florida. he joins us now live from washington. because you're moderating the debate, we understand you won't talk about the debate directly, but where do you see the presidential race with two debates now in the book? >> well, i think it's closer than it was and i will say this about last night's debate. i think both of the candidates helped themselves. i think as far as the debate itself, i think joe biden probably won, but i tell you the other part. i thought that paul ryan kind of passed the vice presidential test. i don't think anybody -- this will be people who vote for mitt romney and people who vote against him, but i don't think you'll find people who will vote against the republican ticket because paul ryan is
. as for undecided voters, the cnn poll was of all viewers, but cbs did a poll specifically of undecided voters who were watching the debate, and joe biden won overwhelmingly, 53% to 35% something in that range. those are the voters that people are looking for right now. they clearly said joe biden was the winner. >> one of our polls cnn/orc poll, they said who was more likable. and it was paul ryan who won by a decent margin. almost 10% margin there. also, who performed better at the debate? that looked like a tie from our perspective. >> that was a poll of all the viewers. it was as you indicated earlier slighted weighted towards republicans. >> this was debate watchers. >> right. but the cbs poll was debate watchers who were undecided going in. and they gave the clear victory. >> let's talk a little bit about paul ryan on tax cuts. i want to play a little bit from the debate. >> sure. >>> there aren't enough rich people in small businesses to tax to pay for all their spending. so the next time you hear them say don't worry about it, we'll get a few wealthy people to pay their fair share, watch o
the cbs but not by a huge margin and then the cnn poll among all voters, paul ryan had the advantage. it was almost a split decision, not only in that focus group but also the insta-polls. democrats loved it, republicans didn't. people are split and i think that's your verdict. >> speaking of focus groups, we get the sense that the obama campaign is going to be effective? >> i think joe biden gave them a road map. abortion was a hit on romney and ryan. it was almost like obama was a little too cold the first debate. joe biden was was hot and goldi might come. >> he has to find goldilocks. stick around because this was not the feistiest debate of the night. i'll give you nasty, go to arizona. >>> who was the last chief justice nominated to the supreme court by a democrat? it's chief justice fred vincent or as he is known here on campus dead fred. vinson was appointed to the high court by president harry truman is an iconic college alum. they take his portrait to every home football game and other big events on campus. dead fred was there for the first thrill in the ville back in 2000
on either side. >> the polls are showing something completely different. cbs, cnn, all the polls are showing that, in fact, they believe that ryan won. so i don't know where jehmu is getting her polls from. maybe from the democratic national committee. i want to show something that's on facebook. >> eric: this is becoming a fundraising tool for both sides. look at this. this is a take off on kanye west in 2009 when he interrupted taylor swift. this is from the national republican congressional committee. as you can see, it says, you know, let me interrupt you, let me finish. no, i'm not, so the republicans are using that to try to raise money against joe biden. but the democrats are supporting him. look at this. they're saying, way to go, joe. and they're now -- that's a bunch of malarky. jehmu, which side will win? >> i think vice president biden did what he needed to. there is no question and democrats haven't sat back and whined the way that republicans have. we were clear in saying look, president obama was not up to his best game in that first debate. but vice president biden absolutely
, not vote numbers alone. he did was, you could see it in cbs poll, their panel of uncommitted voters. liz: the guys and ladies in 40 40 40-yard line. >> yes, 30% said that romneycared about people about them at the beginning of the debate, by the end it was 53, almost doubles, he made hi hims, i am not an ogre, and second he managed to say, i have a vision, my ideas here is my program, president was terrible. liz: here is the problem, we're also seeing al gore who blew a comfortable lead. >> yes, against bush, the debate. with whoever the challenger is, that was two nonincumbents, the reason it was s important for romney is he had been sohammerred. he is an upspside down favorable/untapunfavable rating. >> it left the viewers thinking. >> you saw this guy, you said, he is not -- oh my god i should look at him, look, the president still has one commanding poll aspect, which he may be on the verge of throwing away because of their desire to now redemonnize romney. he has an aproppal rating at 50%. liz: but he is attacking eploiting his own record. >> but look, the people of ipoll last ye
, the swing voters. >> let me give you some of the immediate reaction from people who watched the debate. cbs news asked the question after the debate who won. 50% said joe biden 31% said paul ryan. cnn had a poll as well. who won? paul ryan 48%, joe biden 44%. cnn parentally republicans were oversampled more than usual in a cnn poll. so that may be why that number's high up. and i'm going to give david and jonathan a chance to catch their breath and get your analysis. i've been flying all morning long and i'm not into man fights. this notion, the headline will be can president obama duplicate, replicate, pick up where biden left off, that is what matters here. >> i think that will be the headline starting tomorrow. we done the have to wait till tuesday. >> right. >> the fact that there's no unanimity of agreement like last week. last week everybody knew what happened, democrats, republicans alike agree, it had not been president obama's best night. last night both sides are defending their guy and i think it was probably close to being a quote, unquote, tie. but it doesn't really matter if i
but there was one poll done by cbs of independents. and uncommitted voters. that was their entire sample. after the debate. and biden won 50-31. >> woodruff: just independents. >> just uncommitted, people who were supporting a candidate but said they could switch, could leave that candidate. and so biden did-- i didn't find, i mean joe biden's default facial expression is a smile. i mean if he's irritated he smiles. he's got great teeth, i don't blame him for smiling. but if he's happy he smiles. if he-- if he is a little nervous he smiles. i didn't find it to be-- i mean he did interruption but i didn't find it to be so over the top. >> woodruff: you didn't think it took away from the substance. >> i think that you could certainly on a split screen if you would prefer it that he hadn't done it the way he did it. and there were occasionally some sounds of displeasure. but i thought at no point did paul ryan express, or manifest other than the one time he raised the question, and i thought it was perfectly appropriate on his part, where he said i think it would be better off, people would get mo
of economic progress out of washington on congress. a recent cbs/"new york times" poll found congress has an approval rating of 16%. if the president wins, with his legacy on the line, we talked about this a little bit in the last segment. what honestly can he do? he's tried a lot of things, he's tried different chiefs of staff, different approaches to congress. this is really -- what's the special sauce? how does he get back and say we have to go and we have to change things for america? >> there are many ingredients to a special sauce. some of them are personal. the president will have to do a better job, building better relations with republicans. the republicans leaders will have to do a better job of accommodating and trying to actually do business with the president. welcome to the world of washington. to get deals done you have to give to get. the president has to give some things up to get some deals. if john boehner is back as the speaker of house and mitch mcconnell whether the republican leader or the majority lead of the united states senate, these are guys who for years have
was republican because the founder of cbs work directly for dwight eisenhower, and ike, personally loved walter cronkite so when you have the 20th anniversary of d-day, dwight took cronkite there. so there is would feeling cronkite might be a republican but the vietnam war showed him to be a liberal, and he came out publicly saying, i'm a man of the left, in a speech with barbara jordan. >> host: did that hurt him? >> guest: no, because at that time he had stepped down as the anchor manin' 1981. he played mr. objective quite bell, and if you go to a doctor and are getting surgery you don't care if the doctor is a democrat or republican, but when he came out and voiced some disseptember own the vietnam war, it was the beginning of him editorializing, and today we see people in television who are editorializing all the time, and that's a slippery slope we're on now. and also, you see, with cronkite the berth of celebrities and television. where cronkite would go to a rally with senators and people running for president, everybody bum rushed them. they wanted to meet cop cite, not a senator from w
to a minimum. >> elise, let me stop you there because i'm going to play what andy wood said to cbs news. >> sure. >> -- for enhanced or continued security that we had, that we had known, that we had come to live with and work with there for the environment we had, we felt we needed more, not less. >> $64,000 question, of course, is so why would requests like that go unheard and unanswered? >> that's the big question. when asked who said that, he said the state department superiors. and there is one woman testifying today, charlene lamb, deputy assistant secretary, where it seemed that the buck stopped with her and she was the one that said, you know, need to keep the security to a minimum. soledad, what officials are saying is, listen, there was security improvements made to the consulate, to the office, over the last several months, leading up to the attack because there were other attacks on the consulate. there was this ied attack and other western targets. but what they're saying is the kind of assault that they suffered that night, this 40 armed gunmen, outmanning everybody there,
outlandish to be true but it is indeed based on a true story and what a story. here's our cbs news national security correspondent david martin. >> reporter: everybody who was alive at the time remembers it. the iran hostage crisis. 53 americans held captive at the american embassy in tehran and then the agony of a failed rescue attempt which left eight american servicemen dead. what you might have forgotten is that there was another rescue mission, one that succeeded >> this is the only thing that we did in iran that worked. >> reporter: and tony men degrees was the guy who made it work. the man known as the c.i.a.'s master of disguise went into tehran and brought out six u.s. diplomats under the noses of revolutionaries chanting, death to america." >> just like robbing banks except in our case we had to make it look like the money was still there >> the other guy doesn't know he's been robbed >> and he's happy. reporter: that was 32 years ago. men degrees is now retired, slowd by age and illness. but he is about to appear on the big screen played by ben affleck >> my name is tony men degr
: you are light right. there was a cbs poll that showed joe biden the winner. there were others from cnn, cnbc, the a.p. had a poll out that showed paul ryan the ryan. both sides declared victory and then can produce data to back up their claim. i just saw a tweet on the twitter account of the president talking about joe biden's victory. a lot of republicans talking about paul ryan's victory. so both sides trying to cast their man came out victorious. if anything, it set the table for the next presidential debate. >> we heard paul ryan saying you have some ground to make up for. which did they go in there -- was this to try to make sure that joe biden was in charge and aggressive? and what was ryan's goals? >> reporter: a little bit of both. you could argue from the point of you from both parties that your man did exactly what he hoped to do. last week in denver, biden went out, challenged the republicans on a number of fronts, took the debate to ryan, some might say he crossed that invisible line and went too far. i think that's what some republicans are arguing. i think they are very p
. and adding insult to injury, cbs canceled the first new show of the tv season made in jersey about a jury the girl and arrogant -- they make it wasn't a good show. i looked at it for two seconds. good bye. we are a few days into earnings season. all eyes on two banks that will be reporting. big banks. sandra smith at the trade day. sandra: looking at the numbers here it is going to be interesting. set up ahead of the bank earnings tomorrow. as i show you numbers and the dow and s&p and nasdaq suffered a precipitous fall for the past several days. we have seen only a couple companies report -- most companies that have reported -- if you look at the big ones like alcoa, look at what they took after it kicked off earning season tuesday back below $9 a share. alcoa lowered its aluminum demand forecasts. this is a huge global company. commons reported lower its 2012 forecast. customers are putting off their purchases and reported mixed sales forecasts and that stock tumbling 2%. here you go. wells fargo, j. p. morgan reporting tomorrow and the numbers are expected to be pretty decent for both
. >> what does that tell you about netflix? >> netflix is a help to all the content help. cbs could make its quarter, not that they would do this, but just jamming stuff to netflix under their programming deal. you have to buy this, you have to buy that. great deals they have signed for cbs with netflix. >> most content providers say at the end of the day they are diagnostic, but when i was talking to michael burns, they have a great partnership with netflix but he did say a better deal came along -- they don't have a loyalty there. there's no loyalty to netflix. it's a delivery system. >> it voted to keep ramping up its streaming subscribers and if one falls then they are in divulge. >> are they going up every year? >> i believe so, yes. >> so people gave away things to netflix initially and now they found out -- >> they can charge more for it but netflix needs to add more programming to make the services as robust to against the likes of amazon, which is it is doing more effectively with more stuff there than you want. >> i went to the premier held by netflix and that was the one episode i
in europe and daniel schorr, then of the cbs evening news senior foreign correspondent reported that barry goldwater's planned trip to europe was really a clandestine effort to meet up with neo-nazi elements in hitler's stomping ground in order to coordinate the fall campaign. goldwater actually sued and won, one of the very few times we get libeled or slander by the press and get punishment for. since 1987 the media research center has been documenting these attacks and providing fodder for people like me and others to sort of turn tables on them. the trend has always been the more you admire a leader, a conservative leader like goldwater or reagan or clarence thomas or jesse helms or rush limbaugh, the entire congressional class of 1994 or the tea party movement mostly of united states western civilization, basically anything that is on the side of truth, justice and the american way, we get demonized for it and treated as if it were some sort of otherworldly evil creatures. so tonight we give you some snippets down memory lane of the past 25 years. ♪ >> i think liberalism lives, the n

one camera even when they are not speaking. and it goes on to say the major networks, abc, cbs, cnn and fox news all say they plan to use the screen shots regularly throughout the vice presidential debate. they said it is even considering them during the presidential debate last week. in denver some of the candidates in the past have tried it with varying degrees of success to the limit from using what our reaction shots from candidates. to bill clinton and president george bush in '92 when it starts to write into the debate contract the television networks could not broadcast such images. the story goes on to say networks use whatever schultz the choose despite the pressure from the campaign and the year typically nine cameras hosted by the commission on the presidential debate a nonpartisan organization that oversees the production while the commission has final say over whether the cameras -- where they are placed they do not control the mechanics of filming the camera angles or decisions about when to cut away. it is left solely to the discretion of the network pool is providing

latham and republican winner boswell. kcc i am the register article users can find it tomorrow on cbs.com. >> a brief explanation of the procedures that were going to follow tonight. it will be fairly informal, but we do have a few rules to keep on track. the candidate each has one minute to open things up in 45 seconds for the closing statements. kevin and i will ask questions and we've also read questions from readers and viewers. and their on no time limits on the rebuttals. but we will encourage results to be safe and on point. modmac just a few moments ago, a coin flip was one by leonard boswell. congressman tom leighton will begin opening statements. >> thank you very much for the chance to here tonight. and for hosting this debate. i'm a small businessperson and a farmer, that is what my life experiences. if they had more opportunities than what their parents and grandparents had, everybody tonight, if we stay on the track that we are on, are we going to leave those children with more opportunities in the future. and i think that that really is the question today. the way tha
and cnbc did polls and mr. ryan was on top. cbs had one with some focus group. they felt that the vice president won. peggy nuland writes fort second time in two weeks, the democrat came out and defeated himself. in both cases, the republican was strong and the democrat somewhat disturbing. another way to say it is the old man tried it patronize the kid and the kid stood his ground. the old man pushed and the kid pushed back. >> brian: she did not mean that complimentary. >> gretchen: i actually think had is a debate that's going to percolate over a couple of days. when people go back and read and maybe see video and see this reaction, i think it may percolate over time where people will maybe change their opinion of exactly how it went. >> brian: it was -- >> gretchen: i think a lot of people -- i think it rubbed them the wrong way with the attitude. the headlines now. one month after ambassador chris stevens was murdered, the obama administration has named a new american envoy to libya. lawrence pope will represent our country until the white house nominate has new ambassador. >> bri
